Orlando Shooter Called 911 to Swear Allegiance to ISIS Leader

Orlando Shooter Called 911 to Swear Allegiance to ISIS Leader

Omar Saddiqui Mateen, the man who shot and killed at least 50 people at an Orlando nightclub on Saturday (June 11), reportedly called 911 before the shooting.

The 29-year-old Florida resident swore his allegiance to the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, during the call, according to NBC News.

Law enforcement officials are currently looking into his ties to the organization, in addition to searching his home.

Meanwhile, Mateen‘s ex-wife, who didn’t want to release her name, has revealed that he was abusive toward her during their relationship.

“He was not a stable person,” she told the Washington Post. “He beat me. He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that.”

She added, “He seemed like a normal human being. He was a very private person.”

Our thoughts remain with the victims and their families.

In case you missed it, watch President Obama‘s full statement on the shooting.

    Wish I could strangle this man with my bare hands. Seeing his picture and seeing a face to this evil makes my blood boil.

  • CanYouSeeMe

    He beat her up over laundry and she still thinks that he was a normal person? Oh dear. More evidence that the scars from abuse are more than just physical.

  • Jess

    How can she say he would beat her for not doing chores and then say he was a “normal human being.” That is not normal! His actions had less to do with him being Muslim than with him just being a gigantic assh*le.

  • Kee FRIEND Leichtle

    I think (not certain) but I think she meant that when first meeting and dating him, he seemed like a normal and private person.

    i saw that too. how one sentence he was beating on her and the next sentence “he was normal.” i guess that might qualify as normal in her world

  • jane

    not saying these are, but these look like pics you’d post on a dating site. frightening that you can meet people and never know what they’re about

  • gradybridges

    He was no more in ISIS than I was-Fact is the AR-15 and other weapons like it should have been banned after Sandy Hook(same weapon used) but the NRA thinks a weapon of mass destruction is for home defense or hunting.
    He also would have been on a watch list that prevented him from buying guns if the NRA and Republicans didn’t block it.
    This is about easy access to weapons of mass killing. Ban them

  • Jess

    Totally agree! If the mass slaughter of 20 elementary school children wasn’t enough of a slap in the face that things have to change then they will likely never change.
